Question which killed me today:
Can you explain grandfather paradox by running the simulation [of a population] back in time?

Maybe you could run it as an inverse /sensitivity analysis Verhulst logistic equation?

When the Internet of Things really takes off will we have interminable waits for software updates? “Working on updates. 30% complete. Don’t turn off your toothbrush.”

“Mr.  Chip,  the Ferris  &  Brockman  Retail  Credit  Auditing  and  Analysis  Agency has  published  a  special  flier  on  you. Our recept-slot received it yesterday and it remains fresh in our minds. Since July you’ve dropped from a triple G status creditwise to  quadruple  G. Our  department  -  in  fact  this entire  conapt  building  -  is now  programed  against  an extension   of   services   and/or credit   to   such   pathetic anomalies  as  yourself,  sir. Regarding  you,  everything  must hereafter be handled on a basic-cash subfloor. In fact, you’ll probably be on a basic-cash subfloor for the rest of your life."
